Southern Snow

I was hoping for a bit of snow out the the system that is tracking across the mid-south. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Skies were cloudy for most of the day with a few breaks in the late afternoon. Winds have been brisk out of the northeast gusting up to 24mph with temperatures in the upper 20's most of the day.
Snow is falling across the mid-south tonight. Memphis is expecting 2-4 inches of snow out of this system. I think that is unusual for them. Memphis is pretty far south although snow is not unheard of there. I was reading the comments to an article about the snow from the Memphis Commercial Appeal website and everyone seemed to be freaking out. Many comments about packed grocery stores. I guess that is a universal thing. Everyone rushes to the store because they think they won't be able to get out the next day. Ha! It would take an extraordinarily large storm to keep you prisoner at home for more than a day or two. It would take a blizzard!
